Walking the Trail from Magome to Tsumago 2007/10/6 05:04
Kiso Valley
Hi,
I'm planning a trip to Tsumago for the festival of Bunka-Bunsei times in Edo period on November 23. I'm leaving from Nagoya to Nakatsugawa then on to Magome and take the walking trail to Tsumago for the festival. I'm traveling alone. Is this safe, to walk the trail alone? And does anyone know what time the festival starts? Thanks in advance!

Some parts lead through unpopulated forested areas, but as a man, I had no safety concerns. As a woman you are likely to encounter no problems either, but there is always a small risk.

And does anyone know what time the festival starts?

Thank you Uji. I searched everywhere trying to find a link for time. I will change my plans though because I was going to Magome first and then on to Tsumago. I should go to Tsumago 1st so I can see this wonderful festival. I'm looking forward to this special part of my vacation.

I went to Japan last year and I felt very safe. So although there is some risk, I will probably walk the trail.

Hontou ni domo arigatou gozaimashita!
